Wonder Wall: Laser-Shooting Clock Keeps Life Organized

It has been said that the days of the single-purpose gadget are over. If an electronic item doesn’t do at least two or three things, we aren’t interested. And why not? Smaller components are being engineered all the time, so it makes sense to save space by cramming lots of different gizmos together into one.

The Sundial Wall Clock concept features a revolutionary space-saving design that combines a clock with all sorts of other organizational and social applications and a slick touch screen…and lasers.

The clock itself blends analog and digital display methods, using lasers to point to the traditional clock-face positions of the numbers and projecting the numbers themselves onto the wall’s surface.

But the Sundial can do much more than tell the time: it keeps track of handy facts like currency exchange rates and weather conditions. It even appears to be able to play music and display the name of the artist and track on the wall.

Maybe handiest of all, the device can keep track of your schedule and display a timeline for you so that you know exactly what your entire day looks like before it even starts. The designers, Yonggu Do, Dohyung Kim and Sewon Oh, say that the Sundial would easily sync with your home computer so all of your schedule info would be wirelessly beamed over to the awesome wall adornment.
